Re: The Lorax - 50th Anniversary - Apply for a grant for your environmental program
I do not recall there being any trouble or fuss. Suess' estate and family just made a decision...perhaps to avoid any trouble or potential besmirchment (is that a word) of his name. I personally do not find any fault in his depictions...the work always a product of its time. In hindsight yeah, they were cringey. But it was the way things were and not in an evil way. I am not a fan of judging a past Era by modern sentiments and knowledge. It is just such a poor way to react.
I have said this since I was younger. It's silly because it is necessary. People in general just do not care, let alone are they cognizant of, their impact on the world. So we do need it. Maybe it should expand to a month...more?
These special days are really just used by most to give the impression that they care. Whatever. It's fine with me, but we need more to move to a higher level.
